    Nevada: America’s Playground

    Picture of Las Vegas sunset

    Most people know Nevada for one thing: LAS VEGAS. Las Vegas is a mirage in the desert: a sea of lights in the middle of nowhere. There’s actually a lot of interesting nature in Nevada. Nevada boasts Lake Tahoe as well as America’s Loneliest Road. But Las Vegas is THE draw. Even if you’re like me and partying isn’t your style, it’s still nice to visit Sin City on your big southwestern road trip to see one of the most unique cities in the entire world.
